    New museum says dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark

    New museum says dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark

    By Andrea HopkinsSat May 26, 11:54 AM ET

    Like many modern museums, the newest U.S. tourist attraction includes some awesome exhibits -- roaring dinosaurs and a life-sized ship.

    But only at the Creation Museum in Kentucky do the dinosaurs sail on the ship -- Noah's Ark, to be precise.

    The Christian creators of the sprawling museum, unveiled on Saturday, hope to draw as many as half a million people each year to their state-of-the-art project, which depicts the Bible's first book, Genesis, as literal truth.

    While the $27 million museum near Cincinnati has drawn snickers from media and condemnation from U.S. scientists, those who believe God created the heavens and the Earth in six days about 6,000 years ago say their views are finally being represented.

    "What we've done here is to give people an opportunity to hear information that is not readily available ... to challenge them that really you can believe the Bible's history," said Ken Ham, president of the group Answers in Genesis that founded the museum.

    Here exhibits show the Grand Canyon took just days to form during Noah's flood, dinosaurs coexisted with humans and had a place on Noah's Ark, and Cain married his sister to people the earth, among other Biblical wonders.

    Scientists, secularists and moderate Christians have pledged to protest the museum's public opening on Monday. An airplane trailing a "Thou Shalt Not Lie" banner buzzed overhead during the museum's opening news conference.

    Opponents argue that children who see the exhibits will be confused when they learn in school that the universe is 14 billion years old rather than 6,000.

    "Teachers don't deserve a student coming into class saying 'Gee Mrs. Brown, I went to this fancy museum and it said you're teaching me a lie,"' Dr. Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, told reporters before the museum opened.

    A Gallup poll last year showed almost half of Americans believe that humans did not evolve but were created by God in their present form within the last 10,000 years.

    Three of 10 Republican presidential candidates said in a recent debate that they did not believe in evolution.

    So almost half the population and about a third of the Rep. Presidential candidates are medieval in their thinking... sad.

    it gets sadder since in the REST OF THE WORLD Evolution is more popular by a LANDSLIDE.

    Small wonder Americans think the world revolves around them...

    This museum is an embarrassment.

    Why not:

    a) chill out.

    b) title and write your threads without so much partisan invective that my eyes glaze over.

    Seriously, it's no typical of me to accidentally dupe a story, and plenty of people have done it to me as well. Some people prefer "just the facts" instead of the story buried in your style of photoshops of bush, or pictures of maimed people, or quasi-tourettes-like screeds.

    I leave it up to people to draw their own conclusions as much as possible, unless I'm simply editorializing. The difference, however, is usually clear.

    Well... just looking at the thread titles:

    1. New Museum For Right-Wing Anti-Intellectual Morons

    or

    2. New museum says dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark

    Title #2 sounded like it would be less of a rant and more of an article to post opinions about. I opted to read thread 2

    LOL..My-my. Aren't we defensive? Did we wake up on the wrong side of our cage this morning? Tsk..tsk. I wasn't condemning you for it. Simply pointing it out. I have no doubt that your eyes are glazed over, but it has nothing to do with me.

    No, there's nothing to be defensive about. Your threads offer little more than rants and horrible pictures, so I ignore them. As do a lot of people. You also have a habit of being on the scene as a thread that was civil becomes completely derailed.

    Your resorting to ad hominem and childish taunting only cements this opinion.

    That is certainly your prerogative and fine with me. Accordingly, I tend to ignore you as well, but not because I'm making any conscious effort, like yourself. It's simply your bland, jejune and passionless screed tends to make me want to dose off.

    You took my "screed" and raised me "jejune". Do I get out the thesaurus, too, or just give you the last word? The latter, I'm bored of this.

    I tend to agree. But according to the moderator when she banned dchristie, the traffic immediately dropped off by 35%.
